Tekashi 6IX9INE was upset when a hunger charity rejected his $200,000 donation, saying they didn't want to be associated with his kind.

The "FeFe" star took to social media to rage after No Kid Hungry, an organization that provides aid to struggling families across America, rejected his large donation.

Organization officials turned down the check once they learned who the rapper was.

The group announced they did not want to be associated with Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez.

"We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez's generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation," read a statement issued by the non-profit, obtained by TMZ.

"As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values."

But a Los Angeles non-profit won't let the $200,000 go to waste. The charity Kooking 4 Kids will gladly accept Tekashi's money.

According to TMZ, Keith Johnson, Executive Director of Kooking 4 Kids - a non-profit supporting young people which serves between 1,600 and 1,800 free meals to children and parents every day - insisted if the rapper's looking to do a good deed and help eliminate hunger, his efforts should be appreciated.

"If there is an individual that wants to help address hunger in Los Angeles, we welcome it," he said. "How that person wants to live their life is for them to decide."

The ex-convict, who is currently under house arrest as part of his sentence for gang-related charges, earned a small fortune from merchandise he promoted on Instagram last week. His Instagram Live video broke a record for number of views in 24 hours.

Rapper Meek Mill challenged Tekashi's Instagram numbers, saying the IG Live views were fake.

A hunger relief charity rejected a $200,000 donation from gang-affiliated ex-convict Tekashi 6ix9ine, saying they didn't want to be associated with his kind.

The "Fefe" star, who is currently under house arrest as part of his sentence for gang-related charges, earned a small fortune from merchandise he promoted on Instagram last week.

He sent a check for $200,000 to No Kid Hungry, an organization that provides aid to struggling families across America. But organization officials turned down the check once they learned who the rapper was.

The group announced they did not want to be associated with Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez.

"We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez's generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation," read a statement issued by the non-profit, obtained by TMZ.

"As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values."

Tekashi, who has a long rap sheet, was convicted on charges of racketeering, firearms offenses, and drug trafficking in New York last year. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance.

Blasting the news online, the rapper fumed, "@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel."

Police were forced to find a new hideout for Tekashi after a neighbor leaked the location of his Long Island safe house on the internet. Then someone leaked the location of his second safe house on the internet on Tuesday.

Tekashi69 has a target on his back after he snitched on gang associates in exchange for shaving years off his prison time.

Snoop Dogg urged execs at streaming service TIDAL to "stop pushing" Tekashi 6ix9ine's new music, or financing his shenanigans following his release from prison.

The rapper is currently under house arrest with 24-hour police guards after leaving a federal prison last month. The feds were forced to move him to a nw safe house after a fan exposed his location on social media.

Fans gathered outside the unassuming clapboard house as agents whisked the rapper away under heavy guard.

Tekashi has a target on his back after he snitched on fellow members of the Nine Trey Gang in February, 2019 in exchange for a reduced sentence on racketeering and weapons charges.

Snoop is among the many gang members who are against Tekashi's attempts to revive his career.

After 6ix9ine dropped new single "Gooba", which smashed YouTube’s record for the most-watched hip-hop video in a 24-hour span, Snoop commented on an Instagram post shared by Elliott Wilson, TIDAL's chief content officer:

"They gotta stop pushing this (rat). All these media outlets making snitching cool. I'm old school. F**k 69 and everybody pushing his line right now, all New York GZ feel me on this and if you don't f**k u2."

Addressing Tekashi’s long-standing feud with rapper Meek Mill, the OG added: "@meekmill if you allow sucka s**t you a sucka. Love you cuz stay sucka free."

YNW Melly (left) has tested positive for the coronavirus at the Broward County jail, where he is being held on double murder charges.

The 20-year-old rapper, real name Jamell Demons, filed for early release a day after a New York judge released rapper Tekashi69 on house arrest.

Melly was arrested last February on two counts of first-degree murder in the October 2018 shooting deaths of aspiring rappers YNW Juvy (Christopher Thomas Jr.), 19, and YNW Sakchaser (Anthony Williams), 21.

In a statement, Melly's legal team said they hoped his release from jail will allow the rapper to find "better care due to any jails not being prepared to treat this new virus."

Melly is not likely to be released due to the seriousness of his charges. He is facing the death penalty.

Tekashi69's lawyer also cited his health (he reportedly has asthma) in his request to a judge to release the troubled rapper from a federal lockup, where he served 13 months for federal RICO and weapons charges.

It isn't clear if the judge imposed any Internet or social media restrictions on Tekashi, 23, who will be on house arrest with an ankle monitor for the next four months.

Tekashi 6ix9ine's gang leader pal Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack (right) has been sentenced to 17 years hard time in prison for drug dealing and racketeering as part of the violent Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods set.

Mack, 33, was convicted of racketeering and conspiracy to distribute heroin and fentanyl, but was acquitted of a kidnapping charge.

Mack was identified after Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, testified against the gang members he was previously associated with.

Judge Paul Engelmayer imposed the 17-year sentence on Mack after noting he had done "nothing to accept responsibility" for his leadership role in the gang crimes. Judge Engelmayer said he would have reduced Mack's sentence by several years had he pleaded guilty.

"Remember this moment," the judge told Mack when lecturing him to take responsibility for his crimes, reported the New York Post.

Among the friends and family pleading for leniency was Pedro Sierra, a Bushwick High School principal and dean, who sent a letter of support, describing Mack as "well respected in the community."

"I know deep down in my soul, if [given] the opportunity, Mr. Mack will spend his time giving back to our community," Sierra wrote. "Many of the students are also facing many of the same traps Mr. Mack has faced, however, Mr. Mack will be able to help them avoid it."

He added: "In this day and age many of the students will listen to someone who is well respected in the community as Mr. Mack."

Tekashi, 23, is expected to be released from jail this summer, after the "Fefe" star was ordered to serve only 2 years behind bars for racketeering and firearms charges in December, 2019.

A federal judge disagreed with prosecutors that rapper Tekashi69 should be set free with time served. The judge sentenced the 23-year-old rapper to 24 months in prison with 5 years probation after he is released.

The judge lectured the rapper for over 20 minutes. He said Tekashi will not walk free today because the 13 months the rapper has already served is not enough time.

After telling Tekashi he "squandered" his recording career by joining a violent gang, the judge said, "Mr Hernandez, please rise. It is the judgment of the court you are to serve a term of 24 months in prison, with five years of supervised release."

He continued: "I impose 300 hours of community service when you get out, and a fine of $35,000. Mr Hernandez, the worst part is over. There is a great deal to be admired about you. You've learned a hard lesson here. I wish you very very well. We are adjourned."

Tekashi69, real name Daniel Hernandez, was arrested on racketeering, weapons and drug charges in 2018. He was also charged with conspiracy to murder and armed robbery as a member of the notorious Nine Trey Bloods street gang.

The judge considered victim impact statements from 2 armed robbery victims: a man and a woman who say their lives have been altered by the rapper's violent actions.

The man said he lives in constant fear of Tekashi69 sending his gang associates to "finish the job".

The victim concludes his impact letter by asking the judge, "Why should this person, who nearly ended my life, be free when I am not free?"

Black Twitter responded to a judge telling wannabe gangster Tekashi69 that he will not walk free today.

One Twitter user referenced a quote by Breakfast Club radio host Charlamagne da god who said he would perform fellatio on Tekashi69 if his charges were dropped and he walked out of jail a free man.

The 33-year-old male explains, "Never have I been so scared as a cold, hard metallic gun was pressed against my abdomen."

The man also said he lives in constant fear of Tekashi69 sending his associates to "finish the job".

Rapper Tekashi69 isn't confident of his chances at next Wednesday's sentencing hearing. The 23-year-old New York native, real name Daniel Hernandez, reached a plea deal with prosecutors to turn on his gang associates in exchange for a lighter sentence.

Hernandez was arrested in November 2018 on RICO and weapons charges. Additionally, he was charged with conspiracy to murder and armed robbery. He pleaded guilty to nine felony charges in February 2019.

The rapper sang like a canary in open court, giving prosecutors all the evidence they needed to send 2 of his Nine Trey gang associates to prison for a minimum of 20 years each.

Hernandez, who is being held without bond, hopes his snitching will sway the judge to go easy on him.

He penned a groveling letter to the judge who will hand down his sentence on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

In the letter obtained by TMZ, Hernandez said he is "overwhelmed with emotions" and "it honestly feels like my world is crashing down."

"I'm sorry to the victims who were affected by my actions, to my fans who look up to me and were misled, to my family who depends on me and to this courtroom for this mess that I contributed to."

He continued:

"I'm truly sorry for the harm that I've caused. If given a second chance, I will not let this Court down and I will dedicate a portion of my life to helping others not make the same mistakes that I've made."

Hernandez faces a minimum sentence of probation or a maximum sentence of 47 years in prison.

He has been labeled a snitch and will require 24/7 security to protect him for as long as he lives.

The prosecutor’s office in NY has officially requested a significantly reduced prison sentence for incarcerated rapper Tekashi69, aka 6ix9ine.

According to TMZ, the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York has submitted a request for a lighter sentence after the last of Tekashi69's former gang associates was sentenced to 20 years in prison last week.

The feds are grateful for the rapper's assistance in locking up members of the notorious Nine Trey Bloods street gang. They say Tekashi's assistance was "incredibly significant and extremely useful" in prosecuting and convicting 2 members of the gang.

The feds acknowledge Tekashi's testimony in open court put a target on his back and endangered his family. In the docs, prosecutors say, "There's no question that the defendant's life will never be the same because of his cooperation in this case."

They added 6ix9ine and his family will need 'round-the-clock protection at all times to avoid a retaliation attack from gang members. Tekashi's legal team says the rapper declined an offer to enter him into the government's witness protection program.

As part of his deal with the feds, Tekashi pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering, firearms offenses, conspiracy, narcotics trafficking and other crimes.

A judge will consider the prosecutor's request for significantly reduced prison time when Tekashi is sentenced in 2 weeks. He faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 47 years in prison if he didn't cooperate with the feds.

Incarcerated rapper Tekashi69 is a rich jailbird. The 23-year-old reportedly signed a multi-million dollar record deal from behind bars.

Tekashi's problems may be over after he agreed to snitch on his former 9 Trey Gangsta Bloods associates in exchange for a significant decrease in his prison sentence.

Prior to snitching on his gang associates, Tekashi faced a minimum of 47 years in prison on charges of attempted murder, weapons possession, kidnapping and racketeering.

Execs at Tekashi's former record label - 10K Projects - are so confident that he will be released soon, that they offered him a record deal worth more than $10 million!

According to TMZ, Tekashi is looking at a 2020 prison release with credit for time served.

In addition to shelling out $10 million to the "FEFE" rapper, the record label may be forced to foot the bill for the rapper's 24/7 security.

Tekashi declined to enter the government's witness protection program after snitching on his gangsta pals. His life is in danger the moment he walks out of prison.

Rapper 2 Chainz nearly sent social media into a frenzy when he announced rapper Tekashi69 was released from jail and he bumped into him in New York City.

In a hilarious video, 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, informed his followers that he ran into Tekashi69 on the street on Wednesday.

"I got breaking news, the boy done got out," 2 Chainz says in the clip, which is captioned: "In NYC just ran into 69".

"I just ran into him too and y'all ain't gonna put y'all motherf**king hands on him either!" the 42-year-old rapper added, before gesturing toward a giant inflatable rodent - a symbol of anti-union strikebreakers - on the back of a pickup truck.

Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, was arrested last November and later pleaded guilty to nine federal charges including racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and drugs trafficking.

In accordance with a plea deal that could set him free as early as next year, Hernandez turned government witness and testified against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang associates, ensuring he will be looking over his shoulders for the rest of his life.

His decision to name his fellow gang members sparked outrage among fellow rappers, including Snoop Dogg who labeled him a "snitch".

Tekashi is currently behind bars, as prosecutors fear for his safety. Jury deliberations in the trial began on Wednesday, WENN.com reports.

Tekashi69 reportedly turned down the opportunity to enter the United States Federal Witness Protection Program. The 23-year-old rapper considered entering the program after testifying against fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods street gang.

Last week, the troubled rapper testified that fellow rappers Jim Jones and Cardi B were involved with the Bloods gang.

He also admitted he helped try to kill a rival gang member, as part of a plea bargain to avoid a potential 47-year prison sentence.

While Tekashi 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, was mocked by fellow rapper Snoop Dogg for being a "snitch", TMZ reported the rapper rejected an offer to enter the program because he wants to revive his recording career once he's freed from prison.

TMZ added that, instead of government-funded protection, he'll hire his own 24/7 security team to guard him and his family.

Although he's currently behind bars without bond, Tekashi apparently believes he'll be able to pick up his music career once he's out of jail - as early as next year, as part of his plea bargain with federal prosecutors.

Tekashi was expected to go into the witness protection program, but he was told he would have to pay to remove his distinctive tattoos.

Tekashi's trial is expected to wrap on Thursday. The trial will be documented in the upcoming Snapchat series Tekashi69 Vs The World, which is expected to drop soon.

Tekashi69 must pay to remove his face tattoos to enter the government's witness protection program, because the government won't pay to remove his distinctive face tattoos.

The 23-year-old rapper turned government witness to shave decades off his prison sentence if he is convicted of racketeering, attempted murder, and firearm charges.

Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, faces up to 32 years in prison.

According to the NY Times, the witness protection program is one of Tekashi's options if he is released early from prison.

The government has successfully relocated reformed criminals and mobsters who turned government witness. One mobster is now a doll salesman in a suburban town.

But the rapper's distinctive rainbow colored hair and tattoos would make it difficult for him to blend into suburbia.

"Despite how connected we are, and the appetite for social media content in this country, there are places where, if this kid gets a haircut and wears normal clothes, no one would know or care who he is," said Jay Kramer, a former F.B.I. official.

The U.S. Marshals Service, which runs the witness protection program, won't pay for the removal of Mr. Hernandez's signature face tattoos if he is accepted into the program.

Once in the program, Tekashi can't have contact with his family, friends or associates.

Rapper Jim Jones was exposed by incarcerated gang banger Tekashi69 as a card-carrying member of the Nine Trey Bloods street gang.

Tekashi69, also known as 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, sang like a canary in heat on the witness stand during his first day of questioning on Thursday.

The 23-year-old rapper testified as a government witness against several members of the Bloods in his ongoing racketeering case.

On Thursday, Teskashi confirmed that Jones was in the gang's back pocket. Later, under cross-examination, Tekashi also confirmed Bronx rapper Cardi B is a member of the notorious Bloods street gang.

It is a well-known fact that Cardi reps the Bloods. She often brags about her gang affiliation in rap lyrics.

"You joined the Bloods to advance your music year?" attorney Alex Huot asked Tekashi.

"Yes," Tekashi replied.

"You knew Cardi B was a Blood?" Huot asked.

"Correct," Tekashi said.

"You knew Cardi B made music videos with Bloods in the background?" the attorney asked.

"Correct. I didn't pay attention," Tekashi said.

Jones, who is a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Bloods, was caught on a wiretapped phone call telling a godfather of the Nine Trey Bloods he'd "best get to violating" Tekashi 6ix9ine for splitting from the gang.

In a taped phone call dated Nov. 17, Jones and Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones (no relation) discussed Tekashi's comments denouncing the Bloods during a radio interview on Power 105. The men agreed that Tekashi had humiliated high-ranking Bloods member Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, who was the Brooklyn rapper's manager.

Mel Murda is heard telling Jones that Tekashi should be "super violated. Super duper."

Jim Jones responded, "Tell that n — - a he's not a gang member no more. He kicked out the whip. He was never a gang member ... He was always a money ploy for the gang members."

He added, "They gonna have to violate shorty 'cause shorty on some bull***t. He better get to get to violating."

"Violated" is street slang for murdering or torturing a gang rival.

Tekashi and Jordan were both arrested along with other gang members in a federal racketeering sting operation last year.

Tekashi is being held without bond in a federal detention facility awaiting trial.
